Had some favorable response from friends while we were cooking dinner and listening to 7-18-76. Also had some really good feedback after a smoke sesh and throwing on a smokin' Hey Pockey Way from '89.

One of my roommates always joked about how the jams he was hearing from my room always sounded the same (I was listneing to lots of 68-70 at the time and yes, there is much similarity between jamming approaches to all the songs in that time period). Anyway, we were listening to raunchy '70 Good Lovin and we smoked a bit of herb. We were just talking and all of a sudden a smile spread across his face and he "got it". This is psychedelic music, so a little herbal or chemical stimulation will go a long way in helping newbies to hear the beauty of the overlapping rhythms and melodies.

Indeed it has but these great shows need to be extolled. For all the people that check these forums regularly and get sick of us harping up our favorite shows, there are many more who only read occasionally and may miss these suggestions unless we are insistent :)

I agree . Even small things like what does TJI mean ?
